Famous singer Ed Sheeran made an unexpected revelation. The star said that he had been dealing with substance abuse. Apparently, this is the reason why he decided to take a year off in 2016. The star talked about his struggle with drug abuse during an interview on The Jonathan Ross Show.
Luckily, Ed addressed the issue. “I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to [fame], and I didn’t adjust because I was constantly working on tour. And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse,” the famous singer said. “I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that’s why I took a year off and buggered off,” Ed went on to explain.
The star also confessed that he cannot work while being under the influence, and this is why working helped him a lot to overcome the struggle. “I focused on work, and I can’t work under the influence, I can’t write songs under the influence, I can’t perform under the influence – so the more I worked the less [that happened]. I’ve worked my whole life to get to where I am and you can’t lose that over something that you do in your spare time,” the star explained.
Ed also confessed that he did not realize what was happening and that he was starting to develop an issue. “I didn’t really notice it was happening. It just started gradually happening, and then some people took me to one side and were like, ‘Calm yourself down’… It’s all fun to begin with, it all starts off as a party and then you’re doing it on your own and it’s not, so that was a wake-up call and taking a year off,” he claimed.
Ed also made a sweet revelation. The star said that not only his work helped him, but his girlfriend Carrie Seaborn also offered him a lot of support and helped him stay sober. Ed also revealed during his interview that he and his girlfriend are currently living together.

Suge Knight has made some shocking claims. He has actually said that famous rapper Tupac might be still alive. He said that when it comes to the rapper, “you never know.” Suge made the statement in an interview with Soledad O’Brian and Ice-T for the special Who Shot Biggie and Tupac. Suge is currently in prison and will face trial on murder charges related to a 2015 crime.
TMZ obtained the interview which shows Suge saying that Tupac could still be alive. “When Pac died… I mean, if he really did, you know,” Suge began saying and immediately received a question seeking to clarify what the CEO of Death Records wanted to say. “I mean, when I left that hospital, me and Pac was laughing and joking. So I don’t see how someone can turn from doing well to doing bad,” he also said. “I’m gonna tell you with Pac, you never know,” Suge concluded.
Tupac passed away in 2016 after being shot four times by an assassin while the rapper was in the car waiting at a red light. The incident happened after a Mike Tyson boxing match, which Tupac attended. Suge Knight was in the car with Tupac when it all happened. The famous rapper was shot twice in the chest, once in the arm and once in the thigh. The shooting occurred in Las Vegas.
Tupac did not die on the spot. In fact, he was pronounced dead at the hospital six days after the shooting occurred. The shooter was never found, so it was never revealed who the assassin was. Of course, a lot of speculation has been made on this subject, some even claiming that Suge was involved in Tupac’s death. And speculation also emerged on whether Tupac was really dead.
Some claimed that the famous rapper faked his own death because he feared that he might end up being assassinated. Some photos at one point allegedly showed the famous rapper alive, but of course, nothing has been confirmed.

I need some time to create,” the star explained. Gaga also said during her interview that she puts a lot of heart into her albums.
“Every single one of my albums–no matter of they were received with critical acclaim, commercial acclaim, or artistic acclaim–every time I plant my feet further into myself, and that is what I believe to be honorable as an artist,” she explained. “You fall on the sword always. It’s your work, and when I make my work, there’s a reason and I think about it and I love it, and that’s what matters,” the star said.
Gaga also confessed that her fans who plan on attending her Joanne concerts will probably not get a surprise unreleased song. The star said this would be very difficult, although Gaga is known to have debuted songs during her concerts in the past. “That’s not to say I won’t do songs here or there that I can call during the show. But, this show’s actually extremely complex and complicated, and the stage is coded with a computer,” she said, adding that there is a whole team to make sure that things will happen at the right moment.
